The first tower we saw was the SilverStone Raven RV04, which we talked about last month. The main new feature of this tower is that you can set the components rotated 180 degrees; previous Raven models only allowed for a 90-degree rotation. It supports ATX and the bigger E-ATX motherboards, as well SSI CEB multi-socket boards. It has two frontal hinges; you can open it to find two 5.25″ bays. It also features two USB 3.0, one microphone and one minijack ports.
Other noteworthy units are the SilverStone PT14, PT15 y PT16 (from smaller to bigger size, respectively), which are very simple and minimalistic, perfect for CPUs like the Intel NUC (next Unit Computing). These models’ heatpipes transfer the heat directly from the processor to the tower. At SilverStone’s stand, we could see it working with an Intel Core i3-3217U processor and two DDR3 2GB memory modules without any trouble. They support mSATA SSD HD drives.
Finally, the T004 caught our attention because of its peculiar shape. It is clearly designed to be set vertically; its dimensions are 163 x 180 x 430 mm, so you can imagine it. It supports PCI-Express x16 3.0 graphics cards, with the video output at its upper part. It has a 450W SFX power supply, 80 PLUS Bronze certified.
